This Hostel is in Oslo, Norway. From the airport you can take a bus (Flybussen) going to Sinsinkrisit. That will take you more or less 20 to 30 minutes to arrive. Upon arrival disembark to the right and walk going down. There is a football field on the right side lined up with housing facilities. You have to walk to... More

We stayed there while sightseeing Oslo. Good parking. Long walk to the tram to get into Oslo (longer walk back as uphill). Staff were ok. breakfast was ok. Low cost facility. Had trouble plugging phones and computers in of a night as not many power outlets in room. No cooling so was hot in summer. no screens on windows so... More

So, I booked knowing it wasn't quite central, but in the end it didn't matter as I wasn't out partying every night. The Oslo transport system is superb, and probably the only reasonably priced thing Oslo has going. The rooms were comfortable, and the four person rooms rarely had more than 2 in. Yes, like all the others hostels, it... More

My friend and I didn't realise that this hostel was a fair bit away from the city centre when we booked it, until we had to get a metro and then a bus to it. Although it was quite a while away from the city centre, it's in a really nice quiet area with beautiful views of the mountains and... More

Amazing breakfast and room service. The place is really clean and new and has a big and cute common kitchen. The receptionists were sympathetic and helpful. The location is good by metro. Furthermore is perfect for couples or two travellers, because private rooms are not so more expensive than shared ones. It was sure the better choice!

Slept here last night actually and had a okay stay. I think the rooms is a bit too small, especially the bathrooms, hard for a large guy as me to fit. The breakfast is great for hostels. And the wifi with good connection everywhere is very appreciated.

Very friendly and helpful staff, nice breakfast and good facilities. From Oslo central station (or Jernbanetorget), take Tram no.17 direction of Sinsen-Grefsen stasjon to Sinsenkrysset bus stop. When you get off from the Tram at Sinsenkrysset bus stop, the Youth hostel is on the hill behind Football field. Just follow a sign of Youth Hostel near the bus stop.. the... More

The title says it all - that's the main logo. It is a bit out of town - a 25 minute tram ride from the center, but in a quiet peaceful location and the buffet breakfast is a bonus in an expensive place like Norway
